Yarra Yering cellar door releases 2011

Here some notes on some of a few of Yarra Yering's wines that I tasted at their cellar door a few weeks ago.  I only tasted small portions of the wines, so I've provided impressions rather than scores.

Yarra Yering Chardonnay 2009
Oily, tropical aroma.  Acidity very pronounced.  Some length.  Not my style.

Yarra Yering Dry Red No.1 2004
Overt capsicum aroma, reminiscent of a Leeuwin Estate cabernet.  Similar on palate.  Acidity evident.  Too green smelling for me.  $92 a bottle.

Yarra Yering Agincourt Cabernet Merlot 2005
Herbal, dusty aroma.  Blackcurrant and a touch of capsicum on the palate.  Held itself together well.  $85.
